The Tingler (1959)
Subject: Solid William Castle Film

Some whacked-out insane scenarios!!!
Like when a man brings his dead wife to Price's house... Price immediately performs an autopsy and takes the tingler out of her body and shows it to the husband. Who calmly stands by with a fishtank to capture the beast.
I don't know about you, but this makes perfect sense to me.
Then when the husand is carrying the props through the house so that we know he is the one who killed her, I get how he did most of his dirty tricks. BUT... how can they explain the hand reaching up from the bathtub?
Subject: Don't forget to SCREAM at THE TINGLER!
Vincent Price plays an only slightly mad doctor to perfection. Perfect horror film!
Subject: Some reseblances to Ridley Scott's Alien
For some reason, a couple of plot elements of this movie remind me of Ridley Scott's movie "Alien". All of those things, like when they remove the "tingler" from the woman's body and it starts moving around attacking people, it all reminds me of when that creature (in "Alien") bursts out of the guy's torso and starts moving around the ship killing people.
A major difference, though, is that there's not as many people dying in "The Tingler" as there is in "Alien". In fact, only two people die in the entire movie. I still think the movie is good, and if the rating scale was 1-10 instead of 1-5 I would give it a 7. However the scale is only 1-5, so I'm giving it a 4.
